Hi, I had this virus which turns all my files in the usb memory into shortcuts. I used UsbFix, is my usb clean now? I don't see the shortcuts anymore.
I would like to make sure my laptop drives are not infected as well, how can I?

Thanks.

You will need to "clean" each drive to be sure.

I suggest you read this:
